Soli has been feeling political inklings since sometime in her teens, rooted in the idea of fairness, equality, and justice for all people. She’s a Kemetic Orthodox, Heathen hedge witch who also serves the lwa and periodically gets pestered by Hekate, Hermes, and other assorted deities and spirits, and it’s not as fun as it might sound. But she would not trade it for anything. If you’re really interested in some sort of concrete political labeling, it’s somewhere in the range of left libertarian, socialist, or Green. Maybe someday she’ll truly understand enough about politics to say for certain. Or maybe by then it won’t matter to her. Soli lives in New England. @syncreticmystic

Debra does not associate with any particular brand of Paganism. She designs her own rituals and ceremonies fitting what feels right to meet the occasion. Her Pagan beliefs affect her most important goals as an activist such as issues of food and energy supplies and securities, and the policies as they impact Earth. Also, changes to our money driven system that keep so many locked out of the sphere of influence is something she actively works to breakdown. She lives in New England.

Deirdre Hebert is an engineer, an author and the host of PaganFM which airs weekly on WSCA-LP in Portsmouth, NH. She grew up in a Catholic family, and was a musician in her church for many years, but always felt drawn to another path. She got a glimpse of that path while serving in the Air Force, when she channeled a piece of poetry, and began reading the work of Starhawk. Later, faced with divorce, addiction and other life-challenges, she realized that it was the old gods who were present to offer succor.
